One piece Tube – Animated film with fresh and attractive content

Among the animated films produced based on manganese stories, One Piece can be said to be a rare success. The film is adapted from a story with the same name. This story is extremely famous and popular. Normally, animated films will not retain the essence of original story, the content will be changed to suit each situation more. However, One Piece is an exception. The details contained in the story are all beautifully presented in each episode.

One piece – You watched that you can never give up

Not only that, the One Piece animated film also appears quite a lot of new details added by the director. These details play a important role in making the film content more plentiful and well-directed by the director. So that the film content is the most suitable. Although some episodes like episode 8 and episode 9 have slightly bad content, Oda’s participation in later episodes has helped make the content of the film more and more progressive.

The image quality of the animated movie hit one piece

The unit responsible for producing the animated movie “One Piece” is Toei Animation. Since the first broadcast of the film on television, One piece has received a lot of support from fans. The film is usually broadcast on the spring holiday of Japanese students. There have been 13 episodes were on aired since 2000. Although each movie only last less than an hour and is broadcasted in parallel with other anime movies, these films are carefully produced, especially about image quality. According to anime experts, the One Piece animation has a higher image quality than the weekly shows on TV.

In some actionable scenes, clearly with the ability to shoot and post-production, the production team can create more beautiful and real scenes. However, the production team did not do well. The action scenes are not really eye-catching. Moreover, although the movie has fan service and the image is not too sensitive but cinemas often mark one piece as a movie for ages 16 and older. Therefore, this is extremely disadvantage for many young fans.

Voice quality of animated film one piece

One Piece is done by a lot of professional voice actors. For example, Vinsmoke Reiju was voiced by Michiko Neya. She is more than 50 years old and has participated in many other popular anime like Alchemist, Pokemon, Yugi Oh… Vinsmoke Ichiji was voiced by Noriaki Sugiyama. Vinsmoke Niji was voiced by 47-year-old Atsushi Miyauchi. The actor also played in Gundam, Ghost in the Shell, Yugi Oh.

There is no word that expresses the greatness of the voice actors

Most characters have been applied the most modern sound technologies by the production to edit and create each character’s voice in the most appealing and easy-to-listen way. There have been quite a number of units that have voiced the animated film but failed. The voice sound of the original One Piece version is the best, the classic version without any voice sound version can replace.

It can be said that One Piece is an indispensable film for the lives of young people. One piece brings us richness in extremely boring life. With image quality, amazing voice sound and content, One Piece always attracts viewers, the sequel of one piece will definitely make you feel satisfied. 13 episodes of One Piece have been on aired. Episodes 14 have been expected to be aired in the summer of 2019. This will definitely be a very special gift for all of us. Please wait and enjoy the One Piece to be released soon!

Shirley Temple, Beloved Child Star of the Depression Era, Passes Away at Age 85

Shirley Temple Black, who as a young child captivated moviegoers around the world, died yesterday at her Woodside, California home from natural causes. She was 85.

Born on April 23, 1928, Black was placed on the road to stardom by her mother, who enrolled her in dance classes at the age of three. In 1932 a talent scout visited the school and she was signed by a small film studio, Education Pictures, where she appeared in a series of one and two-reel comedies. The studio went bankrupt and in 1934 she signed a contract with Fox Films. As she turned six years old she made her Fox debut in the musical/comedy “Stand Up and Cheer!” In December of that year she became the youngest actor ever to have their name above the title when “Bright Eyes” was released. Including what would become one of her most well-known songs, “On the Good Ship Lollipop.” So popular was her rendition that in a few months of release over a half-million copies of the song’s sheet music had been sold. In February 1935 she was awarded a smaller sized, Juvenile Academy Award for her contributions to the film industry. In March of that year she immortalized her hand prints and signature in cement outside of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

After Fox Films merged with the 20th Century Studio, producer Darryl F. Zanuck concentrated his attention on Temple and her career. With a contract calling for four pictures a year, the studio had a team of nineteen writers whose sole job was to find and create projects for the young actress. In 1935 the studio released such classic Shirley Temple films as “The Little Colonel,” “Our Little Girl,””Curly Top,” (which included another of her signature songs, “Animal Crackers in My Soup”) and “The Littlest Rebel.” In 1936 the studio released “Captain January,” “Poor Little Rich Girl,” “Stowaway” and “Dimples.” All of these films, most of them made for under $300,000, were huge successes, even more so when you learn that Temple’s annual salary was $50,000.

Convinced that Temple’s talents and popularity would continue to grow as she got older, Zanuck turned down a huge financial offer to lend her to MGM Studios to star as Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz.” Unfortunately for Zanuck, several Temple films flopped and, at age twelve, her parents bought out her contract and sent her to boarding school. During breaks from school she continued to work in films but, at the age of 22, she decided to retire. 1950 also saw the end of her five year marriage to actor John Agar. It was Agar’s misfortune to have a fan of Temple’s as the presiding judge. When he began to address the court he was immediately interrupted by the judge who declared, “Don’t you DARE blame your troubles on Shirley Temple!”
Temple was also one of the first movie stars to have a merchandizing contract. By 1941, over $40 million worth of Shirley Temple dolls had been sold. In fact, with all of her marketing and endorsement contracts, she easily doubled her annual film salary each year, earning $200,000 in 1936 alone. Less than two weeks after her divorce from Agar was finalized, Temple married Charles Alden Black, a Naval Intelligence officer, who upon their meeting informed Temple he had never seen any of her films. That must have been the magic potion because the two remained married for 54 years until his death in 2005.

Despite intermittent television appearances, Temple wanted to devote her time to worthy causes. After an unsuccessful try at local politics, she was appointed Representative to the 24th United Nations General Assembly by President Richard M. Nixon in 1969. Five years later President Gerald R. Ford appointed her United States Ambassador to Ghana. She was later named the first female Chief of Protocol of the United States and was in charge of arrangements for President Jimmy Carter’s inauguration and inaugural ball. In 1989 she served as the United States Ambassador to Czechoslovakia after being appointed by President George H. W. Bush. Eight decades after her career started she would gladly answer fan mail and sign autographs. Some of today’s young stars should take note on how, with the love and support of family and friends, you can achieve your dreams without hurting yourself or others!

I am a total fan of B-horror movies & the Scream Queen era of 1980s thru early 90s. I grew up on these films and they are always going to be my favorites. Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens and Michelle Bauer are definitely the original Scream Queen’s. Films like “Return of the Living Dead”, “The Slumber Party Massacre” and “Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers” were and still are some of my favorite 80’s horror films. They are timeless and only get better with age. This documentary gives some really great insight into birth of the VHS horror days and the original Scream Queens!

You can really tell that this is a real passion project for Jason Paul Collum. Linnea Quigley (“Return of the Living Dead”), Brinke Stevens (“The Slumber Party Massacre”) and Michelle Bauer (“Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers”) really seem to have a great time telling their stories of how they became cult icons of the late 1980s. It also gives insight into what they are doing now as well, so it is a great revisit into their careers. If were were a horror fan and a teenage boy in the late 80’s, then you will know how much these film’s have impacted your life. “High Heels: The Rise & Fall of the Scream Queen Era” is fun, informative and a real treat for any fan of the genre.

The unrated DVD also comes with some great special features for hardcore horror fans. There are bonus interview footage with Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens and Michelle Bauer, which is definitely worth checking out. There is also fun footage from the Flashback Weekend of Horror convention Q&A. If you caught this film on television on Chiller and censored BTW, you need to see this unrated cut with all the boobs included that made 80’s horror great. Fans of classic 80’s films are going to NEED to pick up this release, no question!
